The Hawks and Knicks played insane 4 OT Basketball Game Sunday Night

On the other hand, Doc's third-born is definitely available. "We're four or five games out of the playoffs, I think we realize now that time is running out".

As for Melo, likable teddy bear that he is, I've never been a fan. This week, however, the Knicks made their intention to trade the former scoring leader more explicit. Crawford has two years left on his deal worth approximately $30 million. Knicks guard Derrick Rose left the game with a sprained left ankle midway through the third quarter and didn't return.

Being Phil, he also told all to a confidante, Charley Rosen, once his assistant coach in the minor leagues. Jennings' 3-pointer in front of the Hornets bench followed nine straight points from Lee and gave the Knicks a 105-101 lead with 1:19 left to play. Maybe it's a coincidence. Jackson and Rosen also shared the same optimism, or naivete, about what the Knicks might get. It remains to be seen how Mike Budenholzer will deploy the starting lineup, but players ranging from Kent Bazemore to Paul Millsap and even Taurean Prince could be called upon to defend Anthony.

Imagine the sound of muffled laughter coming from the Cavs' end of the line.

The Sixers fell into a 20-point hole early in the second quarter and, once it battled back, got nearly no help from its bench as they dropped their second straight (see Instant Replay). In this case, there was no shortage of sites to crib from.

"It appears the Celtics could be that team [to facilitate a Carmelo Anthony deal]", reported NESN, "although it's unclear who [Celtics general manager Danny] Ainge and Co. would receive in the trade if they steer clear of Anthony".

Westbrook plays alongside the second youngest roster in the National Basketball Association with Kevin Durant in Golden State now. Anthony will likely bring on more potential suitors in the summer, and Noah will be near impossible to move. In the loss in Dallas, Lee became the major bright spot with his team-high 23 points. Given that the Knicks are initiating talks, all that may have already been ironed out.

Negotiations established that the Clippers wouldn't give up DeAndre Jordan, either. or Chris Paul. or even J.J. Redick. Yes, a backup point guard that just so happens to be the son of Clippers head coach Doc Rivers.

With Kristaps Porzingis on the sidelines (fouled out in regulation) and Derrick Rose out with a sprained ankle, NY was shorthanded heading into the extra periods.

This is the Knicks' dysfunction in a nutshell. The Knicks are weighing all their options but since Anthony gets to control his own future, they lack leverage when it comes to trade discussions. He's going to need at least a second banana if they want any hope of escaping the first round of the playoffs. "I tried to fight through screens, tried to pressure him and tried to make it tough on him", said Jennings, who chimed in with 15 points on 6-for-11 shooting. Between Doc and CP3, his close friend, Melo would move the ball or get an earful.

If the players aren't willing to commit to playing defense and trusting one another based off principle, then the trade rumors will suffice as a galvanizing force.

It's a new day in Clipper Nation.
